Only a Sinner

OHT Incipit:  53451 76165 42347

Naught have I gotten but what I received;
Grace hath bestowed it since I have believed;
Boasting excluded, pride I abase;
Iím only a sinner, saved by grace!

Only a sinner, saved by grace!
Only a sinner, saved by grace!
This is my story, to God be the gloryó
Iím only a sinner, saved by grace!

Once I was foolish, and sin ruled my heart,
Causing my footsteps from God to depart;
Jesus hath found me, happy my case;
I now am a sinner, saved by grace!

Only a sinner, saved by grace!
Only a sinner, saved by grace!
This is my story, to God be the gloryó
Iím only a sinner, saved by grace!

Tears unavailing, no merit had I;
Mercy had saved me, or else I must die;
Sin had alarmed me fearing Godís face;
But now Iím a sinner saved by grace!

Only a sinner, saved by grace!
Only a sinner, saved by grace!
This is my story, to God be the gloryó
Iím only a sinner, saved by grace!

Suffer a sinner whose heart overflows,
Loving his Savior to tell what he knows;
Once more to tell it would I embraceó
Iím only a sinner saved by grace!

Only a sinner, saved by grace!
Only a sinner, saved by grace!
This is my story, to God be the gloryó
Iím only a sinner, saved by grace!
